Thanks!

Thanks so much for your kind words and prayers concerning my earlier post. I saw the doctor today. She said I did still have cellulitis, but did not prescribe another round of antibiotics. I was both relieved and concerned by that She’s been concerned for a while about the fact that my blood flow from my feet back up to my legs isn’t good, and the excess fluid in my lower legs makes me more prone to infections like cellulitis. So we are working on that angle of things right now. I may have to go to a vein doctor — but I hope not. I’d appreciate your prayers.

Though rain was forecast for the whole week, the sun came out yesterday and again today. I know, especially as a Christian, my outlook shouldn’t depend on the weather, and normally it’s not that affected by it, but when feeling a little gloomy in spirit anyway, I think it helps those feelings along.

The Lord blessed with some ideas today for the monthly newsletter I am working on my our church ladies’ group. Plus, in thinking about my morning schedule with things that needed to be done around getting to the doctor’s office, I didn’t even know how to arrange it — but it just fell into place. Those “little” tokens of the Lord’s love and guidance mean a great deal.

Our ladies luncheon is coming up earlier than usual this year, and though I knew that, some of the ramifications just hit me this week — like needing to decide on a caterer and menu so I will know ticket prices so I can start getting announcements out.

I have thoughts for several posts, but because of these other duties I am short of time this week — plus I do still need to keep my feet up a good bit to try to counteract gravity. It will probably be pretty light posting here at least til the weekend (though I have said things like that before….)

Psalm 3:3: But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.

  1. Hi Barbara, we’ll be praying that this gets healed up entirely. Christian or not, I think the weather does affect us. My SIL and husband pastored in Bellingham, WA for a couple of years. Because it was nearly always overcast, she really had to fight against depression. They now live in Phoenix, perfect for her.
    Have a great week.
    Brenda 🙂

  2. I’m praying for you and I hope that things clear up on their own. You’ve been dealing with this for quite some time and I hope the doctors can get things corrected. HUGS to you!

  3. Ohhhhhh I’m sO sorry I didn’t get over to find out you needed prayers. I do hope this new direction of treatment will be successful and this problem will be solved once and for all! Cellulitis is just TOO scary! I AM praying now!

  4. Hello Barbara,
    I”ve neglected you lately because I was feeling bad.
    I think because of the earthly body with its chemical makeup the weather affects us all. We’ve had about 7 days of rain but they say it will end tonight. That is why I scheduled my trip for Sunday, and also because of the traffic being less.
    I’m glad your leg situation seems to be improving. Your ladies group sounds like fun.
    Have a good weekend,
    Mama Bear
